Oh friends. Thanks so much for the suggestion of hiding our evil Elf on the Shelf in the litter box. Houdini captured the little twerk and we bagged and tagged him throwing him in the litter box. It didn’t work out as we expected. First off, Hemi didn’t appreciate the trespasser in his quarters. Then when the little guy got his powers at night time, I paid the price for this entrapment. How do you ask? Rolls piggy eyes. Check out the text below. I think you can figure out what text comes from who. I’m now on phone restriction here at the Hotel Thompson. Anymore suggestions my friends?

We here at the Hotel Thompson have some very sad news to share today my friends. It is with such sorrow that we share the news that Mouse Girl (affectionately know here as OMG – oh Mouse Girl) passed away yesterday on Mother’s Day and is now over the Rainbow Bridge.
Mouse Girl was 10 years old and she picked us to live with 8 years ago at a local shelter. She brought so much happiness and laughter to our house. Mouse Girl was a Maine Coon kitty, was very shy to peeps she didn’t know and will so greatly be missed.
Her passing was sudden, she had not been showing any signs of being sick at all. But things change so quickly and suddenly she is gone. Bare with us our friends as we grieve here at the Hotel Thompson. We will be posting replies and back to visiting blogs soon. ♥ We appreciate all of the emails, messages, posts and phone calls. Friends like you ROCK!

Hello friends. I write this post from my bed. Some of you may know while others don’t about my current situation. I came home from work early last Thursday not feeling so well. I was aching and coughing – a cough I might add is from the depths of hell. I couldn’t sleep that night and was having difficulty breathing. About 6:30am on Friday, I told my husband we needed to go to emergency care because it was getting worse.
Once at the emergency room, they took me straight back and hooked me up to oxygen and started breathing treatments. They took blood, throat and nose cultures, gave me liquid codeine for my cough and gave me steroids. After my second breathing treatment, I started feeling a little better.
That is until the doctor finally came back with my test results – flu. And yes I did get a flu shot this year. The doctor explained that the flu strain they were seeing wasn’t what the flu shot had. Yay me huh? The doctor wanted me to stay the night but where do you want to be when you’re sick? Your own bed in your own home. So they did let me go sending me home with a breathing machine. I’m also taking steroids and ibuprofen. I was instructed to be quarantined with strict bed rest.
I originally felt like a bus had hit me twice. Now I just feel like I’ve been hit once. The aches and pains are still present but the coughing seems to be getting better.
Thank you so much for all of those that sent prayers, healing vibes and cards. I really appreciated them so very much!

Welcome my friends to the first day of my 31 Days of Spook! We love this time of year here at the Hotel Thompson. It’s one of my busiest months trying to keep all of you my friends in blogville just at the right amount of teeth chattering, sitting on the edge and being scared of your own shadow. I hope that you stay with me all month and enjoy my 31 Days of Spook. Today, I start off my tales from a special scary story from my brother Easy. What exactly was seen that can not be unseen in the middle of the night? Read the story to find out and be sure to let Easy know your thoughts. Now, lock the doors and shut the windows… you might even want to turn on a light – boo!
It happened many moons ago to the boyfriend of my mommas friend. That boyfriend had a granny who lived in a small village behind the 7 mountains near Nowheresville. Every year in Shocktober, the people there celebrated a kind of a harvest festival, called Kirmes. That year, the guy invited his girlfriend and my momma to visit that fest and his granny agreed to let them stay over night.
They celebrated with the people of the small village and the booze ran like the Niagara Falls. After they were well filled, my mom and her friend walked to the home of that granny, placed the empty popcorn buckets next to their bed and fell asleep, while the boyfriend found no end and was glued to the beer-fountain.
In the early morning, they woke up by flashing lights and hullaballoo in front of the house. It was caused by the boyfriend who called the police…
As he went home plastered like the yellow brick road, he saw a movement next to a wood pile on the yard of his granny. And he swore by the sun and the moon and the stars and by all brewsky of slice earth that he saw the face of the devil what peeked around that wood pile. He could describe every part of the devilish face and he gave the pawlice all details that they could make a fabulous composite sketch.
Butt the pawlice was eggstremely farouche and they refused to start a dragnet operation. They brought no dogs and hey refused to pulverize the woodpile with machine guns and silver bullets nor would they throw grenades on that pile – Come on pawlice! That’s denial of assistance in an emergency case… and hey, that’s YOUR CHANCE to save the world from the evil.
Sadly the pawlice wasn’t keen to earn endless fame and famousness and after some dingy comments about barflies and drunkards they left the crime scene. And that pawlice actually had the nerve to send a bill for the pawlice operation… 170 bucks… for nothing.
Yes, I know… if more alcohol than blood runs in our veins, it happens that we see “things”… but this guy was scared to death and he was sober with fear immediately. And also the next day he swore that he saw His Diabolic Majesty in the furs… and even as my mom met him by chance some years later, he told her the same story… and he swore again that he saw the devil….
We don’t know what or whom this guy saw that night, but with his detailed description I made an identikit, just in case you walk home once from a harvest festival …
VIOLA… here we have it …

Oh my friends something has happened. Something BIG. Do you hear me – B.I.G. And it happened to Houdini. But I’m getting ahead of myself as usual. Some of you have missed mommy on your blogs, texts or emails. You see mommy has been sick for a couple of weeks now. In fact, last Sunday mommy had to go to emergency care. She has been feeling icky and had this horrendous cough that just wouldn’t go away. The cough was so bad Sunday that she couldn’t catch her breath and she passed out. It was early morning and we were all asleep except for her and Houdini. Fortunately Houdini woke her up by jumping on her and licking her face. After that, mom and dad went to the emergency care. After a lot of tests, x-rays, a breathing treatment and an EKG for safety, mom was diagnosed as having severe bronchitis. She came home that afternoon with lots of medicines and has been resting every since. We are all taking turns checking on her and nursing her back to health.
I tell you all of this so you know where mommy’s head is – sick in a cloud. Fast forward a couple of nights ago and little Houdini was playing in the front room with mommy watching from the couch. Let me show you a picture of how cute, small and adorable he is 🙂 You’ll thank me for this picture in a few minutes. I promise you.
Houdini was playing with his puppy – it’s a stuffed teddy bear. He was pouncing at it, barking at it and pretty much attacking it like he normally does. He looks like he is well… how shall I say it… humping it. There you go – snorts. Last month mom talked to his vet about the humping part. The vet assured mom that it really wasn’t that but more of a domineering kind of thing of who is in charge. Do you see where I’m going with this story? Hold on – it gets better.
So, there he is in position ‘playing’ with his puppy when all of a sudden he whines and looks at mommy deep afraid. Well that got mommy off of the sofa in no time flat and also woke me up to look and see what was wrong. When she looked at Houdini, it looked like he had something stuck to his butt. Mommy thinking was that maybe he had a little poo stuck back there and couldn’t get it out so she was going to help the little guy out – see what mommy does for us ❤
Well, she walked over and picked the little guy up, flipped him over and son of a nutcracker it wasn’t a piece of poo. She immediately told daddy that Houdini was broken. Wacks my forehead with my piggy hoof – broken? Mommy had no clue. No don’t get me wrong. My mom is a smart woman but she had no freaking clue of shall we say Houdini’s ‘manly’ parts. We all started laughing so hard that daddy almost fell off of the sofa. Poor mom – she was shocked that her little baby is now a man. But then you should have seen Houdini’s face as well – he was scared. He didn’t know what was happening. And daddy was no help because poor mommy was out of it. There she was holding Houdini with all of his junk exposed, she’s sick and coughing, worried about her broken baby and we were no help. Daddy finally found his voice and told her what it was. Mommy’s response? Priceless I’m telling you. She said quote, “Well it’s been so long since I’ve seen one.” OMP (oh my pig)! And then – OMP – wait for it and remember mom was on medication. She said, “Oh my goodness. I have the John Holmes of puppies!” That’s when I lost it and started snorting and rolling on the floor.
Daddy never to miss a beat said, “Well what did you expect when you bought him his first leather jacket this past weekend?” Oh have mercy! I know this is something so simple – a part of nature if you will – but it was so hilarious with mommy being sick and taking medication. It was definitely a priceless moment.
And yes, things did finally straighten up if you know what I mean – snorts. She finally handed Houdini to daddy and told him it was that time for the boy to man talk. So, daddy tucked Houdini into bed that night and he, me and Hemi got ‘the talk’. Lord have mercy so that’s what that is – snorts and rolls around laughing. Have your parents had ‘that’ talk with you yet? My tummy is hurting from laughing so hard. Gotta stop now. Take care my friends!

This is an emergency. I’m out of Cheerios. I’m out of Gold Fish. I’m out of carrots. I’m out of marshmallows. What will I do? I’m going to shrivel up to nothing. My pot-belly is going to disappear. What will become of me –
THUD – I will *not* survive.
This is me begging mommy to go to the market. She laughed at me. Can you imagine that?! My bowls were empty and mommy was laughing.
She went into the kitchen and started pulling magical things out of the cabinets. Of course, there were no carrots but mom found all of my other favorite things.
Sigh – that was a close call my friends. So very close!
